Whether you're a beginner or an avid exerciser, the following six-week program will help you reinvent your fitness commitment -- and yourself. It only takes 21 days to create a new habit, so if you follow this plan for 42 days you may double your chance for success. Sticking to an exercise program permanently is going to take planning, preparation and action, but the results are guaranteed.
Plan -- Take the time to establish your physical goals for the next two months. What, specifically, do you want to accomplish? What actions will you take to get there? Are your expectations realistic? How will you measure your progress?
Prepare -- Begin a new journal and write out your plan in detail. Include a list of where you expect to be from a physical fitness standpoint in six weeks if you begin your exercise program now, and where you will be in six weeks if you don’t. Incorporate motivational pictures and quotes. Review your goals often. Setting the foundation for a solid plan will significantly contribute to your success.
